The following list provides what I consider to be a great entry point into the world of psychedelic music, spanning five decades of this ever-growing genre's popularity.
Every early Tuesday morning, from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Central, valis guides 88.1 KDHX listeners through the netherworlds of psychedelic music on "Trip Inside This House."
It was the canary in the coal mine that let miners know it was safe to be underground. The tiny yellow bird, known for its song, signaled that the atmosphere was safe to breathe.
If Lou Reed had grown up in the Midwest and dug shoegaze and post-punk he might have formed a band like Tone Rodent. At the very least, he would have played its records very loud.
Influenced by the '60s avant-rock of the Velvet Underground, the Black Angels' sinister sound might have you picturing the Velvets collaborating with counterculture’s other favorite celestial beings, the Hell’s Angels.
A great band comprises of 3 things: good musicians, good tunes and good times. Most bands only achieve 2 of the 3, but the Fleshtones merge it all into a spectacle of rock at its finest.
If the members of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Black Angels hooked up to make a record then it might sound something like Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor. Dark, moody, spacey psych-rock is what this Detroit band brings to the table, and to KDHX during an exclusive live session.
Stepping inside the warm environs of Sleepy Sun’s music is to encounter raw and powerful emotions, but the journey will be pleasant enough despite the challenging terrain. The San Francisco band graced the KDHX studios with its brand of carefully balanced contradictions
Buzzing with feedback, humming with organs, raging with electric guitars, and freaking out everything that comes in their path, Davenport, Ia. band Mondo Drag make psychedelic music in the grand tradition of Hawkwind and Blue Cheer. Blow your mind (and your speakers) with their live set at KDHX.
